Working on Old Projects

Sometimes life gives you exactly what you need. I’ve been over stretching myself lately with a project that seems too big to handle. It’s stressed me out even though I’m under no obligation to complete or work on it. For months, I’ve shoved it to the back of my head. Today was one of the days where it roamed back to the front of my mind again.

Staying motivated for projects that are completely voluntary can be difficult. God knows 365 projects are rough at times. Yet, when they are complete, it feels good to have worked on them. I’m pumped about this project and can’t wait to start working on it again.

Also, I randomly ran across a friend’s video. Joel is so inspiring, I encourage you to check out his work on Flickr.

BLOGtober day twenty!

Day of Happy

Today’s post is inspired by Joel Robison‘s 100 days of happy project on Instagram! He just completed it last Wednesday! For this project, you take a photo of what you’re happy about in life for 100 days. While I’d love to participate in the project, I’m juggling this 365 project with work. Instead I’ve decided to blog today about things I’m happy about in my life!

A few months ago I bought Brooke Shaden‘s book “Inspiration in Photography” but I’m just starting to read it now! It’s so exciting to see an artist that I’ve watched grow on Flickr publish a book. It’s beautiful and I definitely recommend it!

After a couple weeks of procrastinating, I finally pinned maps onto the wall! It’s starting to feel homey in here!

With a gift card I received from my aunt for my birthday, I purchased Amanda Palmer’s upcoming book “The Art of Asking”. She’s a wonderful human-being and her music is fantastic. It’s incredible that she’s finally releasing a book!

Finally, Bath’s entire album “Obsidian” is incredible. I think I listened through this album 3 times today because I love it so much! Seriously Baths is an incredible artist!
Those are today’s moments of “happy” or “appreciation”. Maybe in the future, after this 365 project, I’ll do a #100daysofhappy or something! It’s a wonderful project and I encourage you to check out the tag on Instagram!

Tonight I had the ethereal experience of meeting with Joel Robison, Sarah Ann Loreth, and Shane Black. Many people feel distant from those who inspire them because they see them on screens. They watch them on TV or hear about them on the internet. There’s always some barrier to be transcended and these people always feel so far away.

Lately in the photo community, these barriers have started to fall. Photographers like The Wild Ones go out and support other artists. They teach and encourage us to follow our dreams. By meeting with them tonight, they’ve made the art community feel so much closer for me. I can’t thank them enough for taking time to come visit and I’ll definitely be writing more about this tomorrow! Hope you are all having a wonderful night!

Insta-gratification!

 

Although I’m late to the party, I just wanted to say that I’m becoming active on Instagram. There are many great artists who are using it to display a wider body of work that they don’t share elsewhere. It’s a great medium to display miscellaneous images that you don’t want to put on your Flickr or portfolio. If you’re interested in following my work, click the image above to go to my Instagram page!

Right now there are a few artists that I follow who have traveled recently. Their instagrams are full of great pictures, new places, and a lot of other stuff. Here are the top four photographers that I follow:

David Talley (Asia)
Whitney Justesen (Iceland)
Joel Robison (All over the world)
Marcus MB (Australia, Myanmar, Japan, and many other places)
